Brickbreaker-esque game Bubble Worlds will keep you busy through hundreds of levels, even though they all feel the same. Bubble Worlds is polished enough to win a few fans, but the difficultly level goes from zero to 60 too quickly. It's enough to turn a lot of gamers off.
In this game, you shoot bubbles to try to free trapped bananas. When you match three or more bubbles of the same color, they pop and send any connected bubbles flying. It sounds bizarre, but it's actually easy to figure out. You'll be able to breeze through most … Read more

A common trend with mobile games is to take classic mechanics, combine them with a one-minute timer, and challenge users to get as high a score as possible. It's immediately addictive, easy to compete with others, and makes the "freemium" upgrade model easier to implement. That said, Bubble Blast Easter manages to make it work in many ways with only a handful of drawbacks to an otherwise finely-structured, free app.
The goal of Bubble Blast Easter is to shoot colored eggs at a pattern of eggs above you to match and destroy the old eggs. It's … Read more

Here's a novel concept: shoot bubbles to group three or more of the same color together and pop them, while more bubbles appear at the top of the screen. If the bubbles take over the screen you lose. Yeah, we've seen it before in over a dozen different apps for Mac OS X and iOS, but Bubble Shootix is actually a well-done version of this genre. The free version of Bubble Shootix includes ads.

It might not offer the mental challenges of some games, but Bubble Shooter is a fun, even addictive game that anyone can play.
The basic objective of Bubble Shooter is simple. At the main menu of the app, you are given two main game options. The first one is the puzzle mode. In this mode, you have to complete the level by using the fewest bubbles possible. Don't worry, there are no specific time or bubble limits, but your score or evaluation can be greatly reduced as you use more bubbles. The arcade mode features larger, more general sets … Read more
Bubble Free is a Mac OS X bubble-grouping game. It is identical to the Bubble MegaShift iOS game from the same publisher (99 cents for iOS; no free version listed in the App Store).

The larger the group you remove, the higher the score, until you can't remove any more.
Bubble Free installs easily enough and takes a second or two to learn. The … Read more
